How do you meaningfully represent what happened in a project?
How do we re-create the ‘feel’ of a shared moment in time to share with audiences who weren’t there?
How do we understand what it meant to those involved and means to us now?
Join us in the gallery for this half day workshop in which artist Katy Beinart and writer Lizzie Lloyd will talk through some of the issues raised through their current project Acts of Transfer. They will be joined by Beverley Bennett and Benjamin A Owen, both working in engaged practice as artists and filmmakers. Together they will host an afternoon inviting artists to experience the ‘working out’ of these questions together.
Once welcomed into the space, there will be introductions and performances from the participating artists. The event will run for 3 hours, with a break at 2.45pm. We are next to the café, so you can drop in at any point.
Artists will make use of sound, image and moving image projection, spoken word and performance which will initiate some practical activities working in smaller groups. Together we will attempt to describe past projects verbally and in writing, use materials to describe feelings and use the different voices of a project in a new imaginary conversation. At the end of the session we will share our experiences of creating new work and how it reflects experiences of past projects.
This workshop is for artists, students or practitioners who would like to share their social practices and who are interested in sharing ways of documenting their work.
This workshop is an extension of Acts of Transfer, developed in collaboration between the artists, Brighton CCA and Towner Eastbourne, and forms part of Structures of Community, a three-day programme sharing creative practices in the public realm.
